There was much uncertainty over the appointment of Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge this summer, but the Blues have got on with their business and are gaining real traction in the Premier League and the other competitions which they are involved in.
Fourth in the Premier League, top of their Champions League group and still in the Carabao Cup, it has been a brilliant start to the campaign for Chelsea.
There positions are reflected by the Blues' winning streak, following their 4-2 victory over Burnley, Chelsea now have won seven games in a row in all competitions.
Centre-back Fikayo Tomori has been at the heart of the defence since coming into the side at the end of August, and put in a stellar performance against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
"We were on a streak of winning five games when we played at Ajax in the Champions League and that was more a thinking game.
"The Champions League is obviously a difficult competition and then to come away to a place like Burnley is difficult and sometimes you can slip up, but we just wanted to stay focused and we know the threats they posed. I think we dealt with them well."
The 21-year-old revealed the key to Chelsea's recent run of excellent form: "The key to our form is the hard work on the training pitch. Everyone is really focused and we try to work hard every day and implement what the manager is trying to make us do every week.
"It is a lot of hard work, focus, determination and that will to win, and we have a good mix of experience and young players who are gelling together a bit more now. We just want to keep playing well, we want to keep on winning games and winning is a habit.
"Further on in the season, who knows where we can end up but we are just focused on every single game as it comes. We focused on Ajax and won that, we were focused on this one at Burnley and now we are focused on Man United in the Carabao Cup."
Chelsea will be looking to make it eight wins in a row when they welcome Manchester United to West London on Wednesday in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
